Parkman Coders Presents ROBO PI. Students will learn about computer science and the coding language Python using Raspberry Pi mini computers to create a robot of their own design.
Mitchel Resnick a Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab explains why learning to code is important for young people. "In the process of learning to code, people learn many other things. They are not just learning to code, they are coding to learn. In addition to learning mathematical and computational ideas (such as variables and conditionals), they are also learning strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas. These skills useful not just for computer scientists but for everyone, regardless of age, background, interests, or occupation." http://bit.ly/1KEj8sf
